The BBC has acquired a second season of Silvergate Media’s Peter Rabbit pre-school animation.
Launched on Cbeebies in December 2012, the show has enjoyed strong ratings and has frequently topped the BBC iPlayer Most Popular listing.
New episodes will now debut in 2015, with season two consisting of 52 x 11-minute episodes and two 23-minute specials.
"Peter Rabbit is now firmly established as a favourite character of the Cbeebies audience," said Kay Benbow, Cbeebies controller. "I am delighted to continue our collaboration with Silvergate on season 2, and to share with today’s viewers more characters inspired by the unique creative vision of Beatrix Potter."
Peter Rabbit is produced by Silvergate Media in conjunction with Penguin UK and Nickelodeon USA, and is animated by Brown Bag Films.
